HTC is planning to launch HTC OneX10 phablet in the first quarter of 2017. According to a report from VentureBeat, the 5.5-inch phablet will be an upgrade of the HTC One X9 which was launched last year.
With some hardware specs remaining the same, report claims that the HTC OneX10 will use a ‘slightly less powerful version’ of the MediaTek system on chip (SoC) than its predecessor.
The One X10 will feature a MediaTek octa-core MT6755V/C processor clocked at 1.9GHz paired Mali T860GPU. The HTC One X9 however is powered by octa-core MT6795 system on chip (SoC) that runs at 2.2GHz.
The phablet will have a 1920×1080 screen resolution and like the One X9 it will come with 3GB RAM and 32GB on board storage. The probable upgrade in the X10 is its imaging segment. It will sport 16.3-megapixel rear camera and 7.9-megapixel front camera. The One X9 is equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera.
Previous leak reports also revealed the pricing of the HTC One X10 which will come for around $290. Rumors also claim that the company is planning to launch two other smartphones in the first quarter this year. A mid-budget smartphone with codename ‘Ocean Note’ is expected to be released by January 12th. The HTC Ocean Note is said to be a higher end phablet with a curved screen and enhanced camera. The other smartphone could most likely be HTC’s 2017 flagship and upgrade of HTC10. Report (unconfirmed) suggests that the upgraded could make its way through at Mobile World Congress (MWC) which will be held in February in Barcelona.
